It was a tough moment for Xinjiang, when Guangdong opened on a 13-3 run in the third period which sparked by Yi Jianlian's 3-pointer and steal. Following a timeout, Xinjiang erased a double-digit deficit before Li Gen made two free throws and Kyranbek added a 3-pointer to outscore Guangdong 75-69.

Yi Jianlian dominated the fourth while he tied it up on a dunk and then made a three-point play to retake the control of the game. The Chinese basketball legend hit two free throws in the final minute to close out the game with 103-98 when Guangdong brought their bench to its feet.

Marshon Brooks and Ren Junfei each had 17 points, Stokes got a double-double with 21 points and 20 rebounds for Xinjiang.
